Amber, the editor…

John W. Jenkins is a retired minister, artist, poet, beekeeper, fly fisherman, reader, and thinker.

Come Sit with Me

Come Sit with Me as I share my stories…from my journals, Southwest travels, people, animals, beauty, and my religious and philosophical musings. Some are tragedies, but most tell of happy and humorous times.

Come Walk with Me ….remembrances of my youth, explorations of my views of people, nature, and my religious and philosophical musings, serious and not so serious.
